BROOKLYN PARK, MN—The Northland Inn Hotel and Conference Center has converted to the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest, according to Stepstone Hospitality, the hotel's management group.
The 230-room hotel completed an extensive $24-million renovation prior to converting to the Twin Cities’ newest full-service Marriott hotel.
The renovations include adding a lobby great room with a natural stone fireplace, an expansive fitness center with 23 workout stations and refurbishing the indoor pool and whirlpool. The lobby includes the signature Marriott check-in pods, a new business center and a private reception dining area. Wadsworth’s Bar & Grill is open for late lunches, dinner and drinks. The Boundary Waters Cafe & Pub is coming soon for breakfast, lunch and snacks.
The hotel now has more than 50,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, accommodating up to 850 guests. The conference facility offers three ballrooms. Additional meeting space includes a 140-seat amphitheatre, executive board room and 25 meeting breakout rooms.
The hotel is owned by an institutional investment fund subadvised by Boston-based Long Wharf Real Estate Partners, LLC.
Mike Brunkow serves as general manager of the hotel.
